The River

Where life and worship meet.

Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m.

On Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m., The River worship service uses a liturgy based on ancient patterns and rituals, a rich fare for mind, body and soul. It is ecumenical yet with a distinctive Lutheran flavor, infused with inclusive language and expansive images for God. The service is multisensory, the liturgy is contemplative, and sermons are relevant to contemporary issues and struggles. A variety of styles of music are used throughout this service, ranging from traditional hymns done in a reimagined way to sacred songs written recently. Holy Communion is celebrated by intinction (dipping). This is Zionโ€™s newest worship service and it is our hope that The River will be life-giving like the waters of baptism and the rivers that intersect in our community.
